WIP – Aran Afghan

This is a very enjoyable project.  The squares are small, easy to hold, and quick to knit, but challenging.  The patterns are varied, so I don’t get bored before they are done.

1st square knit - probably the easiest pattern in the book.  I like the symmetry

Square 2.  This was ornery.  The border was knit first, then the center section picked up and knit in the round.  Too small for a circular needle; too big around for DPNs.  I finally tried two circular needles (two sides on each), and that worked fine.  There are several of this style in the book.

Square 3.  This is where I finally figured out how to read the cable chart.  Yes, it is logical, and I'm usually a logical thinker, but the charts never "clicked" with me until this chart.

Square 4.  Current WIP.  I think I've mostly gotten the hang of the cables.  There is one cable stitch that I'm not sure is quite right.  Can you tell?  New skill:  bobbles
